Background and Discussion:
This grant is funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Every Body Texas manages the project for the provision of family planning services in the State of Texas for HHS.



Expected Impact:
Title X assists women, men, and adolescents in planning their reproductive lives and achieves their goals for having or not having children.

Harris County residents, particularly those seeking Family Planning program services, will benefit from the services provided by Public Health Services.
